Start with http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse/2011-01/msg00812.html maybe?
What I've seen of the responses on your quest to solve this disgusts me.
What I do with alien installs is put them in /usr/local/, then start them
using fullpath of the executable, putting it in a script in default $PATH if
necessary to ease load on user memory.
